Anadrome. Encouraging Lexical Experimentation.Submitted by jrd3820 on Sat, 07/12/2014 - 15:18
This has been posted around in some comments here and there, and it was in the original jam session for a while, but I thought I’d share it here with anyone who may have missed it.
Anadrome. A new spin on an old game. A few of us around here have been playing this game and we are having fun, but we would love more company.
You can login from gmail and or facebook.
Here are the rules
But basically it’s like scrabble with all sorts of extra tiles and big points to be had.
Why should you come play anadrome with us?
Well, so far John Robb is beating everyone all the time for the most part and he needs to be taken down. After John Robb’s fall from anadrome grace, Jon is next (sorry Jon, I like you and all, it’s just that….well, you hardly ever lose and that is no fun for your opponents) on the list of players that need to have more competition and be dethroned.
Why else should you play?
It is so much fun! You can play one word and come up with a couple hundred thousand points if you play it right. It is better than words with friends.
There are several boards to choose from ranging from endurance style boards, to aesthetically pleasing boards, to strategic play type boards.
You can even design your own board after you play a few boards and accumulate some tiles in your inventory.
You will also undoubtedly learn some new words.
And yet one more reason to come join in on all the word play fun; anadrome is a dailypaul original if there ever was one. This was created by the dailypaul’s resident robot, magician, creative genius guy, Jon. It is a great chance to support a dailypaul artist and have fun while doing so.
Moving on; for those of you already over there playing, I thought we could use this thread for anadrome related purposes, so anything anadrome goes. So if M wants to gloat here, or has wants to challenge me to use words in sentences here, or if John Robb wants to admit to all of us he has programmed a computer system to play anadrome for him and is not really playing himself and that is why he always wins here; feel free.
Oh, and if anyone wants to start a new game with me, I'm Jen over there on the user list.
